kdelibs could probably be broken out a bit, in particular:
* the libs that have no deps on KDE could be packaged individually, making it
easy for 3rd party apps to depend on them alone:
* phonon (ok, not part of kdelibs anymore, but you get the idea =)
* the core kdelibs: core, ui, kio/kfile, kded, knewstuff, etc... libs that are
so commonly used and which make kde apps kde apps.
* non-core significant libs could be packaged on their own:
kdebase should probably be split into:
* runtime; there's no point in having only part of this. the whole idea is
that these are the things apps must be able to rely on being there.
* workspace; maybe a libs+apps split, but this again makes most sense to me as
an atomic unit
* apps: libs in one package (libkonq), applications individually packagable:
konq, dolphin, konsole, etc
for the other modules, i imagine it makes sense to do full package or
just mho =)
